Youth Team


The 2017 Youth Team is raising money for the Community Action Fund and for a new program that was introduced to Los Alamos High School called Link Crew.  The Youth Team has created three unique dining experiences for the community to enjoy in the Fall.  Click if you would like to invest in youth programs and services through the United Way Youth Team you can do so here.

The 2015 Youth Team invested back to help current future high school students. Emily Hopkins, 2015 Youth Team Co-Chair, presented a check Stacy Baker of Juvenile Justice Advisory Board to provide youth mental health first aid training for Los Alamos High School Staff. Topics covered include anxiety, depression, substance use, disruptive behavior disorders, and eating disorders.  Thank you all who supported the youth team in 2015, you made the training possible.
